The aim of the Georgia Aquarium Education Department is to make the education experience an extension on the classroom. We have written objectives that are aligned with the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) at each grade level. Whether your students explore the Instructor-led Education Experience or enjoy Aqua Adventures, the self-guided tour, their experience will meet GPS. We are also able to offer the Planet Shark: Predator or Prey Add-on Program. Pre-K grade level students can sign up for Aqua Tales.
The Georgia Aquarium's education department is dedicated to educating audiences of various ages while promoting an entertaining learning experience that inspires our guests to appreciate the world's aquatic biodiversity and promote conservation action.
Our educational experience is an opportunity for students to discover the aquatic realm in an immersive learning environment. Each education program includes several behind-the-scenes experiences as well as portions of the main Aquarium for you and your students to enjoy.
We have carefully designed educational programs to enhance your classroom instruction. Your experience at the Aquarium begins at the curb as buses are greeted by Aquarium staff.
This is not just a field trip, it is an educational experience!
